In fact this is how started it was firstly just a random chat website text based and had no streaming or video content at all.As video chatting got more popular then this left a hole for something like chatroulette to come along and dominate this niche, as it is a lot of fun to use, in fact one of the most amazing and funny things happened to me on w I had my tunes playing out loud, up popped a lot of people dressed as Hitler around 8 people, and all started dancing to my music, it was both disturbing and hilarious at the same time, from then I was hooked I also saw Merton singing to people on there.
Our chat - the largest, every day it is visited by more than 100 thousand users.
With chat roulette you can improve your language talking with native speaker users from different parts of the world. This is an amazing opportunity to meet interesting people from around the world to find interesting people to show themselves and maybe even find love!
However it did take advantage of the change in hardware and software, with faster web-servers and better flash type peer to peer software, which allows sites that provide video content to stream better without using too much bandwidth.
All of this is free and there was no registration required at all, which means you don’t need an email address, just a computer a webcam and an internet connection, which makes it very simple to get involved as you can just load the website and be chatting within mins.
But before this new random webcamming wave, video chatting and chat rooms sites in general were pretty much the same over, they were mostly java applet type sites, where you could only chat with text only, as more and more people got webcams then more cam style chats opened, there were however chatroulette style sites out there, but they were all text.
